Lunar Silver Star Story Complete
I recently received an e-mail from a gentleman who didn't think highly of my Final Fantasy VII review. He didn't like the last paragraph, in which I suggested that some hardcore gamers who like it might …
reviewed Chicago (city). February 08

CHICAGO
It's a given that Chicago is a very ideal bicycling destination. The flat terrain makes it easier to cycle there than it does in a lot of other cities, lots of nice bicycles lanes make it convenient, …

8C429AF57F8D631EE41736771F2D362
When reviewing Sonic 3D Blast, it's very tempting for a reviewer to wonder just what the developer, Traveler's Tales, was thinking, but in this case, it's pretty clear exactly what they were thinking: …
The Disaster Artist
Ed Wood must be jumping up and down for joy, wherever he is. Ever since the release of Tommy Wiseau's movie The Room in 2003, Wood isn't the worst director who ever lived anymore. Or, at the very least, …

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
A common desire that everyone who ever played the original Genesis version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ever had was to have all limitations on fox hunting lifted so they could blow the head off Sonic's tagalong …

Friends
It just had to be that this year's finale of How I Met Your Mother was going to share space with the 20th anniversary of the debut of Friends, didn't it? It seems pretty appropriate; the two sitcoms have …

House Hunters International
Recently I overheard a woman on a reality TV show who was trying to buy a house complain that an ideal pad she was looking at didn't have enough of that Spanish charm. Ordinarily I try to stay away from …
Storm Front (Derrick Storm)
You better pay attention, because this might get confusing: You may or may not already know that the comic drama murder/mystery TV series Castle on ABC is going into its sixth or seventh season. Castle …

Faith
I originally submitted this to Cracked. They never got back to me, so I'm assuming they didn't go with it. They have strict rules regarding the subject matter… Therefore, I posted this piece in my blog, …

There's a genre of video games referred to as god games, so named because they let the players take absolute power over the world. The granddaddy of the god game is Simcity, but no game takes the god …

Magnificent Mile
It doesn't say a whole lot of good when a place tries to use shopping to advertise itself. It's perfectly understandable if, say, you don't have access to the variety or items you need and …

FC Barcelona
The World Cup is currently going on, and perhaps you know Argentina is making a hell of a go at the title. Perhaps you've also heard that Pope Francis is rooting for Argentina. (I assume he's a little …

Girl Meets World
Forget all the complaints about the nuked refrigerator, the monkey vine jeep chase, Mutt Williams, and the aliens, because those are all arbitrary complaints which have the same general base anyway. Here's …

Classical Guitar
My fingers are short and stubby. They don't seem quite right for a first time learner holding a classical-variety acoustic guitar. The classical acoustic guitar, as per its name, produces a very beautiful …

Paramore
I think by now, everyone on Earth is familiar with the piece of musical crack that is Paramore's single "Ain't it Fun." The pop rock single certainly threw me off - despite the inclusion …

Pearl Harbor
Will someone please tell me what it is about dangerously stupid military recruits that not only fascinates moviegoers, but allows us to suspend our disbelief enough to believe they basically get in trouble …

RedEye
I developed the habit of reading the newspaper every day back when I was in high school. In my neck of the woods, though, my daily paper was unfortunately the glorified internet comment section known …

Boxed Wine
I frequently buy whisky in plastic bottles.     It isn't because I have some kind of preference for plastic bottle whisky. It's merely an issue of convenience. The few times I go out …

Buffy The Vampire Slayer
What we have with Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the hourlong drama response to The Simpsons. The only significant difference is that, unlike Matt Groening, Joss Whedon knew it was past time to call his …

posted in Siliconera Bounce
Duke Nukem Forever
It's hard to believe that Duke Nukem was once supposed to be the Future of Action Games Forever. It's also an irony, because "forever" is also the amount of time his latest game took to develop, as great …

If you would have walked up to Mr. Average Joe Monday Morning Quarterback Football Fan anytime between 1960 and 2000 and asked him what team he hated, he would almost certainly have said the Dallas Cowboys, …

Caution: There are spoilers in this review.    Well, we know two things were promised in the finale of How I Met Your Mother: A mother would be met, and it would be legendary.    W …

New York Yankees
You know them and you HATE them. Well, maybe you don't hate them; maybe you love them. I'm a fan, and therefore, I love them, but the great laws of statistics and probability say you hate them. It's one …

Buffalo Bills
Note: I'm re-writing some of my earliest reviews from my Teams Series because they're so far from the template they eventually evolved into.     I'm from Buffalo, New York, and when …

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Dragon Quest has been the pioneering name in RPGs since the 80's. In fact, Dragon Quest was the series that codified a lot of the little, established facts of life about RPGs that we now take for granted: …
Star Wars The Han Solo Trilogy #3: Rebel Dawn
Quick, somebody get George Lucas on the phone! It's time to show him how a prequel trilogy is really done.     If you've seen the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, it's pretty easy to nail …

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
They couldn't make it last, could they?    After deftly avoiding the big love triangle sub-plot that could have fogged up the first Hunger Games, in the sequel, Catching Fire, they …

Amtrak
My arrival in Chicago went exactly as planned, and I rolled in on the Amtrak right at 9 AM on Friday morning, just as I was supposed to. Except it wasn't 9 AM, it was actually 9 PM. And I wasn't riding …

Breaking Bad
Maybe you remember a certain sitcom from the late 90's called Malcolm in the Middle. It got attention for a few respects: First, it had a reasonably realistic portrayal of a genius kid in its title character. …
reviewed Jagermeister Spice. January 05, 2014
Dear god, is there another alcoholic blend that screams "douchebro" any louder than the Jager Bomb? A shot of a German whiskey known as Jagermeister placed into a small glass of Red Bull? It's best known …

Manchester United F.C.
What say, for a minute, that you, an American sports fan, have mastered every ridiculous quirk and nuance carried by all three - or four of you include the NHL - big leagues. You're looking for something …

New Year's Eve
Okay, I'm a real oddball. I make those ridiculous things known as New Year's Resolutions, and more and more, I keep them even as they grow more outlandish and grandiose. They help me keep track of the …

Mike and Ike Red Rageous
Mike and Ike can hardly be classified as some kind of gourmet food, even by the standards of impulse section store candy. Hell, they're basically nothing more than streamlined jellybeans. Throw a shitload …

Burnout 2: Point of Impact
I have a quick confession to make: I don't like the Gran Turismo series. Now, that's not to say I have anything against it. By all means, the entire series is a marvel of technicality and incredible game …

It's a Wonderful Life
I looked up the writers of the classic Frank Capra flick It's a Wonderful Life. Capra's name was among them, and when I did some further-depth research about his own life, I was a little surprised to …
